Health care database runs on tablet PCs

A health care database management system has made its way onto tablet PCs for hospital employees.

'We're seeing increasing adoption of wireless applications in health care,' said Paul Grabscheid, vice president of strategic planning for InterSystems Corp. of Cambridge, Mass.

Grabscheid said wireless eases, for example, the distribution of various medications to a series of hospital rooms, so his company's health database, Cach', had to conform to wireless connectivity.

Cach' runs under Compaq Tru64 Unix, Hewlett-Packard HP-UX, IBM AIX, Linux, Microsoft Windows, OpenVMS and Sun Solaris.
